Don’t Fear The Sheer: The Skivvies Edit

Posted on January 11 2017

It’s a known fact, sheer is in, has been, and will continue to be…at least until it’s not, but anyways…for now, it is. Red carpet events are clad with celebrities wearing sheer dresses that would make even the brash blush at times and yet they make it look so effortless. As a clothing designer I take note of the strategic placement of sequins, beads, lace, and appliqué but to the untrained eye, it may appear as though one slight breeze might cause a paparazzi paradise of wardrobe malfunction.

I myself had often wondered “How do they do it?” “What does one wear under something like that?” Then, I designed WRITTEN’s first collection and it came time for me to find the answer. Two of the very first pencil skirts I designed, Astrid and Cleo, were created using sheer fabrics and peek-a-boo detailing. Now of course, for the celebrity with a team of stylists, wearing these looks wouldn’t seem like any task out of the ordinary. However, we had real live customers saying, “I love the skirt, it fits perfect, but what do I wear under it?” Well, I’ve compiled a list of the best underpinnings you can count on to pull off the sheer trend showcasing your class…and not your…@$$. This one is for you Judy!

Hanro – Touch Feeling Midi Brief

These microfiber briefs are perfect for everyday wear. They’re cut higher on the leg and trimmed with satin for a smoother line underneath your favorite pencil skirt.

Simone Perle – Top Model Medium Control Skirt Shaper Slip

Shaping and smoothing perfect for under any pencil skirt, but pretty enough to be worn on its own with lace trim detail.

Commando – Classic Thong Solids

Elastic-free to eliminate digs, bulges, and panty lines, commando’s original raw-cut thong is fabulously flattering and supremely soft so it feels like you’re going…well you get it. Great for giving the illusion of nothing underneath with the comfort that there is; offered in a large variety of colors to match every skin tone.

Marks & Spencer – 2 Pack Modal Rich High Leg Knickers

These high waist knickers sit higher on the waist, gently flatten tummies and slim hips for a sleeker slimmer silhouette.

Yummie by Heather Thomson – Yulia Basic Layers High Waist Skirt Slip

A must have basic…enough said.

Shibue – No-Line Strapless Panty Classic

Shibue’s are held in place by a washable and re-usable soft silicone gel adhesive across the top front and top back of the panty leaving nothing but a smooth, clean silhouette on your sides.
